Trends in China’s 2017 FCPA and Anti-Monopoly Cases Roundtable Discussion

China was involved in sixteen out of thirty-one Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) cases in 2016, maintaining its status as the foreign jurisdiction with the most FCPA investigations. Criminal bribery risks to multinationals operating in China remain high.

Please join the US-China Business Council (USCBC) for a discussion on FCPA enforcement trends, best practices for structuring relationships with state-owned entities and an anti-monopoly update. The program will feature remarks from US government and commercial sector representatives.   

Panelists include Assistant Chief of the FCPA Unit, Criminal Division at the Department of Justice Leo Tsao; Jones Day Partner Yizhe Zhang; Hunton & Williams, Senior Attorney Shaswat Das; and Vice President of the Center for Responsible Enterprise and Trade Leslie Benton.
